Turn over the bucket day

15 posts in this topic

Today would be a fantastic day to be sitting on the ol' bucket pulling in the pannies, however I am stuck at work.

Anyone make it out on this beautiful day of warm weather and falling pressure?

I was able to get out for about 1/2 hour.

Sled, hand auger, scoop, rod with jig and a dozen waxies...no flasher because I knew where they would be. Also had my AA bibs and Sorels stashed in my car and used my lunch hour to fish a nearby lake.

Caught half a dozen perch, couple were kind of fatties. Are they full of eggs already? They seemed out of proportion to the length.

I crammed a sandwich into my mouth on the way back to the office. It was great!

Went out on Clearwater Lake near Nokay/Deerwood.

Caught my limit of crappies in a couple hours.

Was a mid-morning bite. They quit biting after 11:30am.

I wish it would've been a little warmer in the morning.

Was kinda chilly fishing on the ice. Should have brought the portable...

I was nursing a cold all day. I might make it out tomarrow with a hand full of dayquil and cough drops.

Got out with the kids today (6 4 and 3 yrs old) and had a blast. Went home with a nice bunch of crappies. Didn't even have to set up the shack until the sun set.

Went to the Croix out of Bayport and caught 7 craps (4 Keepers) 3 rock bass 1 perch and a nasty mud puppy. It was kinda windy, but tolerable for sure.

It was Seniors day out on the lake I was at. Sun was warm but the wind was cold. Met several retired fellas out enjoying the day.

I reversed what I normally do and sat outside in my t-shirt in the sun and had my rattle reels down in the fish house with the window open to hear them. Talk about enjoyable!!

What day isn't a good day to flip a bucket vs sitting in your cubicle?

    • Eaves would have been nice, better to the ducks than someone else. They beat us last go around but we were way better and Gibson won the game by himself.
    • Wow...Ducks get Eaves from Dallas for a conditional 2nd round pick...pretty cheap rental IMO..where were the Wild on this deal...oh ya we don't have a 2nd round pick 
    • Update:     Put some fresh gas in, sprayed the carb valve with some cleaner and cleaned the filter.  Also adjusted the idle speed up a bit. Runs great again!   Thanks for the advice and help everyone! 
    •   Nope...I think that is an original Bear55 Quote but Yogi Berra would be jealous if he were still alive.   Agree on the Blackhawks...when the season ends they will probably be the favorite to win the cup IMO so it will take an upset by any team to knock them off...would love for the Wild to be the ones to do so....it is getting very interesting as the trade deadline and playoffs time approach!
    • Out here (Virginia) our lakes are dirty and warm, and from what I understand, saugeyes thrive in those conditions. Our walleyes are all stocked since very few of our lakes have suitable spawning habitat and there is little to no natural reproduction.   Really looking forward to catching a saugeye just so I can cross it off my list!

    • Funny, that is the same face I get when I think of people voting for a reality tv star in as president. Worse yet he is some kind of billionaire, like the general public should ever trust one of those guys in public office.
    • More like Yogi the Bear but if I stole his quote my apologies.  Have to get that Chicago gorilla off our back, don't care if they win 4 of the next 5 cups, we just need one and I will be a happy camper.

      I'm not liking that they found some decent youth to play with Towes, we need to pounce before they fill in their gaps with depth and scoring again.
    • I am up to 27 in ND so far.  Waiting for more snow to melt.  Cold weather and deep snow makes the deer really group up out here and makes for easy shed hunting, but is really tough on the deer.  The 4th pic is one from some round bales that the deer were destroying earlier this year.   The biggest I find year to year is generally around that mid 60" range.  And I found that one (first pic) in early Janruary.  So hopes of finding a bigger one this year is low haha.
    • The only Merc I saw in Belize was on a parted out boat 75ft from water. Otherwise it was 70% Yammy's, 15% Honda's, 10% Suzzy's and a 5% hodgepodge of Evinrudes, Tohatsu, ect.......
